- Seamless patterns were added. NOTE: You must delete old patterns before install new ones, because new seamless patterns do not automatically replace old patterns! - Watercolor edges became softer and more adaptable - Action algorithm was soft refactored
November 29, 2017
- Transformation of original image to background locked layer was added - Action algorithm was optimized / universalized and became faster approx by 10%

The command “Select and Mask” is not currently available? Every time! I have CC 2015 and named layers correctly. Please help. I installed the brushes, etc as per the instructions. I Tried the second option for CC2015/CC2017+ The first option isn't for my version, so I'm not surprised it doesn't work ;)
boop. whoops. Still not working right
Hi! Thank you for message. First of all, please check you installed the action brushes and patterns. Second, please check your new layer name. It must be “profactions” (not “Profactions” or “Brush”) and it must be not Background layer copy. Also, please send me your PSD (and/or Photoshop screen when the action stopped at first) to [email protected], so I can test your project. I will check. Thanks!
Hi! I keep getting the ‘The command “Select” is not currently available’ message. I have triple checked all the recommended settings and I'm definitely choosing the CC2017 action. It was working previously so I'm stumped. Thanks!
Hi! Thank you for message. First of all, please reset your PS preferences. Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file. Delete and re-install the action.I will wait your feedback.
Really, it's doesn't work. So many issues like "the comand cutout is not currently available" and so many erros. In 6 images i've tried to do the same results of the exemples, no one was like the examples.
Hi! Thank you for message. First of all, please reset your PS preferences. Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file. Delete, re-install the action and try again. Second, please send me one of your PSD with only two layers: Background and "profactions" layer. I will check and give you my clearest reccomendations. Thank you for your time!
I love this action except for one thing. It leaves a rather hard line around the object that is the focus. I've been through the stacks thinking I could just soften the edges, but have been unable to locate where this is. It clearly matches the edge of the brush which I've used to outline the image. I love the color , saturation and just about everything else, except this hard line - I would really like to see more blending or just point me in the right direction so that I can blend/mask to make a much more fluid picture. Or just let me know where or what I am doing wrong. I don't see this issue in the examples on this website.
Hi! Thank you very much for your question. I want to offer you several solutions: 1. First of all, please download (https://graphicriver.net/downloads) and re-install updated version of Perfectum 2. In this latest version graphic outline is made smaller and softer, not intrusive. 2. Please use sofn brush (any color) when you paint on "profactions" area to choose the object for effect. 3. You can always remove part of the outline or completely outline, if you paint over (use soft brush, white color) the folder masks: Small Watercolor, Medium Watercolor and Big Watercolor. But still, the outline is one of many important elements. In most cases, it perfectly fulfills its role in order to emphasize the object, make it more artistic. Be free to contact us ([email protected]) with any questions in the future!
Thank you so much for your reply. After carefully reviewing your examples of how to outline what I want to be the focus. I think that I now realize where I have missed the boat. Your response and my reflection on your examples after I posted my comment led me to see that I need to use the outline to my advantage. Again, thank you for your response. I really love this app and am continuing to learn. Have a wonderful day and thanks again for creating this stellar app.
Thank you so much for great feedback!!
the command "stroke" is not available - about half way through the action in CC 2017 on Windows 10...
Hi! I am sure we will quickly find the cause of the problem. I already have some proposals for you. But first of all, please send to [email protected] PS screen when action stopped at first, so I was able to see and test your project. Thank you very much for your time!
Hello, I purchased your action which looked fantastic but it does not work at all, won't go past the first Select stop. I followed your directions but it did not help. I also tried to send you an e-mail to [email protected] and it won't go through. Please help.
Hi! First of all, please check your image set as Background and your new layer called "profactions". Also send me your PSD with only two layers: Background and "profactions" layer. Thank you for your time!
I also had issues with the action. It said,"The command "Make" is currently unavailable". Can you assist?
Hi! First of all, please check you have installed the action brushes and your brush opacity is set to 100% before playing the action. You can also send me to [email protected] your layered PSD file and PS screen when action stopped at first. I will check. Thank you very much for your time!
Good Morning! I loaded three actions last week including Perfectum 2 and watched multiple youtube videos on the process. The program I am running is PS 5 and I am getting error messages when the action is executed. I have send multiple emails to [email protected] gmail and would like your help in where mistakes are being made. One of my emails should include the .psd file with both layers. Thank you very much!

Thank you very much for feedback! Be free to contact me with any questions any time.
Hi my profactions it ran with errors.
mmmmmm..........seems we all got the same prob! select command currently not available. Tried every which way to resolve this. Intermediate user?
The issue is solved. The problem was in incorrect naming of the PSD layers i.e. Background and masked layer "profactions" (case sensetive) the incorrect names caused the errors. Thank you very much for great feedback and be free to contact me in the future.
Hi, I can not complete the operation. An error message always appears: "The command select is not currently available" It always appears when trying to load the command: "Select brush perf2_br007"
Hi! Thank you for your message. In addition to the action, you must still install brushes and patterns. How to do it, you can see in Helper.txt file or in this video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A43vUlh-2bU&t. Thank you very much for your time!
I´m sorry, but it didn´t worked for me :( I have followed the tutorial, lots of commands is inaccessible, what can I do? Thanks
Thank you for your PSD. The problem is incorrect new layer name above the background. It must be called "profactions". Not "Layer 1". Please contact me, if you will have any questions.
Hello! I have photoshop elements 8. Even if there were limited functionality, I would like to know if there is any way to use the action in PSE 8. If not, would you ever be willing to make a Perfectum for Elements? Have a good day :)
Hi! Thank you very much for your questions. I have the ability to adapt some items for elements. I will tell you if it is done.
Oh, thank you so much for responding :) I am so excited and look forward to being able to buy the action and use it. Once again, thank you so much!
Hi, having some problems, always get the message, the command “select” is not currently available. Seem to find the brush installation, and all the actions, wont simply work, have set the picture to recommended size.

First, please note: Perfectum 2 has two action modes: - for Photoshop CS3, CS4, CS5, CS6, CC, CC2014 - for Photoshop CC2015, CC2017+ Please use the mode of the action appropriate to your photoshop.

Hello Can you tell me, why I'm getting the error: Warning: No pixel are selected. I have PS CC 2017 best regards
Thanks for psd. I see our problem. You must create new layer (not Background copy) above the background layer and called it "profactions". I corrected your file and attached ReadyToUse.psd. Please try it.
I have the error: The command "Clear Styles" is not currently available. Help me, please
Hi! Thank you for message. Please reset your PS preferences. Hold down Alt, Ctrl, and Shift keys (Mac: Command, Option, Shift) while starting up Photoshop. A dialog box will appear asking if you wish to delete the preferences/settings file. Delete and re-install the action. Thank you for your time!
